Pick Up & Drop Off

Drop-off and Pick-up Policy

At Pickens Middle School, our primary goal is to keep all of our students safe. In order to do this, we maintain the following procedures for morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up: 


All students should be dropped off at the front door. Only bus riders should be dropped off in the bus area. Students are allowed in the building at 7:30 am and should report to the cafeteria. Breakfast is served in the cafeteria beginning at 7:30 am. Any student who wishes to eat may report there first and then to their designated area.


ALL students must be picked up by 3:30 PM. Adult supervision of car riders ends at 3:30 PM. Students who are not involved in a school-sponsored activity after 3:30 PM may not remain on campus. If you cannot pick up your child by this time, please arrange to have him or her ride the bus home.
